Over the past several months, attorneys and staff have been collecting used eyeglasses for the Moorestown Lions Club. The collection drive was spearheaded by Kay Sowa, a paralegal in the Trusts & Estates Group. Ms. Sowa originally contacted the club after cleaning out a decedent’s residence where she found several pair of glasses and wanted them to be put to good use. She decided to start the collection at the firm to bring awareness that used glasses can be recycled and can bring sight to needy people around the world.
The firm collected almost 150 pairs of gently used eyeglasses. Lions Club volunteers will examine each pair to determine the prescription. The glasses will be labeled and then sent to countries lacking access to basic eye care.
